Today you are supposed to guess in which neighborhood I took this picture. In the whole of Barcelona there is only one building with this honeycomb facade. I will give you a tip: it is located in the Sant Martí district.
Dilapidated building sometimes showcase true works of art, like here where the peeled-off bill and paint look like a running man, don’t you think so?
Here is a colorful facade to add to your collection. Actually, the original building is copper-colored because it is supposed to represent that metal. It can be found in the El Parc i la Llacuna del Poblenou neighborhood.
With the recovery, the neighborhood of El Parc i la Llacuna del Poblenou is booming: new hotels, office buildings, co-working spaces, and design schools are popping up right and left. In the old days, there were mostly small factories and warehouses in that area, like the one which inspired this picture.
The neighborhood of Baró de Viver is part of the Sant Andreu district. There, one can find mostly brick buildings and housing projects. The good surprise was to come across the façade of this school decked with rectangles of colored material.
Here is a picture I took in October in the Vallvidrera Tibidabo Las Planas neighborhood. I intend to go back there to see what this tree looks like in spring. Barcelona is beautiful all year round.
